In October, Governor Pete Ricketts proclaimed November 6-10 as Nebraska Distance Learning Week (#NebDLW), which also coincides with National Distance Learning Week (#NDLW) coordinated by United States Distance Learning Association.
To celebrate #NebDLW, we highlighted Nebraska content providers by and sponsored a Virtual Field Trip Workshop on November 7 (check out the photographs on our Facebook page). We also featured some providers on social media sharing their distance learning opportunities.
